...ain’t half bad! Today is my birthday, and I am being thoroughly spoiled:
Presents in bed
Breakfast in bed
|Hubby did well making me the tastiest breakfast in bed I have ever eaten!|
A beautiful new sewing box from my girls
(Bunny received one from her grandma for her birthday, I was so jealous! So now I have my very own...)

I have received the kindest gifts from my creative friends, both near and far...
I’ve been treated to a pottery lesson courtesy of my Craft Club friends!
Little did I know that the beautiful heart I was cooing over on Hannapat’s blog was on its way to me!
And the crocheted flowers Marianne was featuring on her blog, well, I have two little lovelies on the softest, prettiest fingerless mittens she made for me!
My very dear friend gave me these two books with the promise of re-teaching me how to knit and to advance my cross-stitch skills in the new year...
And the wonderful Jooles made me the most perfect patchwork needlecase, with beloved Tilda fabrics...
...complete with my name framed in pink!
And the celebrating doesn’t stop after today –tomorrow I’m spending the day at a craft workshop:
This is my big gift from Darling Husband. I am *so excited* to be crafting with the author of The Hand-Stitched Home! Of course I’ll tell you all about it...
On the heels of an emotional Thanksgiving full of gratitude, I have a birthday filled with love, kindness and creativity – someone pass the tissues, please!
There is chaotic activity in the kitchen, the whirring mixer, the tinny-sounding taps of spoons on cake pans, exasperated exclamations from DH, lots of little girls’ giggles...and I am prohibited from entering.
My husband is not a cook or baker by any stretch of the imagination, but Bunny has some grand design in mind for me, so I’ve told him to follow her lead (and Little Flower knows how to work the mixer and lick the spatula as well!).
In the meantime, I will be content with putting the finishing touches on my latest makes, and waiting patiently for whatever is being created in the kitchen...
Life just gets better and better, I don't mind being a year older...have a happy day!
